Here is the second installment of items from an old list someone gave me. If everyone did just one or two of these things, we could make a real difference for our planet. Be a resource tender. Green is beautiful! —-Amara

1.Use greener cleaners. Baking soda will clean just about anything. Vinegar too, is the equivalent of a miracle drug in the cleaning world. Check out http://www.vinegartips.com.

2.Love your dandelions! Do not use weed killer on your lawn. My next door neighbor hates me for this one. He is a lawn freak and is always worried that my dandelion seeds will blow into his yard. I try to make him feel better by mentioning what a lovely shade of yellow the dandelions are.

3.Turn off the dishwasher’s drying cycle.

4.Shut down your computer when you leave work-especially on Fridays.

5.Swap paperbacks with http://www.paperbackswap.com.

6.Find new uses for old things. Note: This does not mean using your treadmill for a clothing rack-you’re probably already doing that.

7.Shred old paper for packing instead of using Styrofoam peanuts. The only kind of peanuts I can get excited about are the kind that are chocolate coated.

8.Buy recycled toilet paper.

9.Eat only sustainably harvested fish to help protect the health of the ocean. (Visit http://www.oceansalive.org)

10.Print on both sides of the paper.
